Zoltan accidentally swapped rows and columns "4,2" should have been "2,4".
Matthew's rbind() syntax is nicer anyway.

However, I also think that "respect = TRUE" may not be what you want.
This finally gives something like

  nf <- layout(rbind(c(0,1,1,0), c(2,2,3,3)))
  for(i in 1:3) plot(1:10, main = i)
